The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) samples and tests waters at 120 locations along South Carolina’s coast. If high numbers for bacteria are found, a short-term swim advisory is issued for that portion of the beach. Come to this information session if you’re interested in receiving answers to the following questions:
How does DHEC ensure that the water is safe for swimming?
What does a short-term swim advisory mean?
How long do short-term advisories last?
What do my customers need to know about these short-term swim advisories?
